Well, I DO. Yes it’s true, for both of my blogs. I follow/subscribe myself.
Is this a way to get another bonus follower? No not really.
What it does is that this way you can be at the same time the writer and the reader.
Alright, here’s the trick:
When you follow youself, you can see how people get your notifications about your posts, and this can make you improve. For e.g. when I first started writing a blog I wrote too many posts at the same time, and I wrote LONG posts. That’s not right at all because then I get lots of mail and when you have lots of mail I guess you just end up marking everything as ‘read’ or simply don’t bother check your mail anymore. This will make you learn how to control yourself if ever you have this problem.
Maybe you’re not aware of your presentation mistakes, because just like a book, if the cover is nice, it is read. First impression = last impression, right?
Always try to be at your readers’ place and you’ll do the right thing.
